The Chess Olympiad torch relay is going to be launched for the first time in the history of the chess Olympiads from the 2022 edition that will take place in Chennai. A torch will be lot in Delhi that will go all across the country and make its way to Chennai for the Olympiad.
And guess what, the torch relay will happen every year and each year, the torch will begin from India! This is similar to what happens in Olympics where the torch each time starts from Athens where the Olympics originated. Well, India was the one that gave chess to the world, and so this honour of starting the torch relay from our country will come to us every two years.
The first torch will be lit up on 19th of June 2022 at the Indira Gandhi Indoor stadium in Delhi. And guess who is the chief guest? None other than our very own Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It’s a big event and will surely help to spread the word across the nation that the Chess Olympiad is taking place in India this year! Great work done by AICF and the entire organizing team.
